On Wednesday, the Arfons family, visiting Israel from New York, were rescued from an Arab mob who tried to lynch them – in Jerusalem.

The family was on their way to visit the grave of their grandfather, located on the Mount of Olives. The Mount of Olives is the oldest Jewish cemetery in the world, going back an estimated 3000 years, and holds approximately 150,000 graves.

According to the father, Yoel, when they reached the area near Augusta Victoria, two Arab-owned cars suddenly blocked them, one in the front, and one from behind.

The Arabs in the the cars then got out and began stoning the car, smashing it, and attempting to physically pull the family out of the vehicle.

One of the passengers, a cousin (40), suffered a hand broken and internal injuries as he protected two children who were in the car, ages 14 and 17. The cousin was taken to Hadassah Hospital on Mount Scopus for treatment. The rest of the family suffered injuries and bruises, but were treated on site.

The police spokesperson said they are searching for the attackers.

  1. So just what is an “Arab car”? What does an Arab car look like? Did it have a Arabic license plate like the one in the photos?

  2. Josh Barrack says:

    Nice reading comprehension Arab OWNED car.

  3. Zahava Miryam Ben Yishai says:

    oh, and i'm sure the the israeli police will "do their utmost" to find the perpetrators. NOT. pity they didn't have any weapons on them to fight off the barbarians.

  4. Ok, Bill Funetes Christensen – so perhaps the translation isn’t the very best – i’m certain that the newspaper meant to state: Arabs driving 2 cars or something along those lines – it’s obvious that they were Arabs, terrorists, or jihadists, or slimebuckets, whatever – violent fecal fetid maggots who have NO REGARD whatsoever for the value of human life – ergo, they should be used as fertilizer to replace some of the camel crap used by these sphincterheads. Now do you get it, loud and clear? Stop nitpicking – it’s the act of violence, not a couple of words not translated correctly that has import. It’s the act, the principle (mis)guiding these brainless jackals.

  5. Anonymous says:

    It is time in Israel to have a well armed group or groups like SWAT, but nothing to have the police and cop and kill this terrorists.

  6. it's a car with Arabs in it who block a rental car (they have decals on the outside that identify them as such) and then smash the windows and try to drag the occupants of the car out into the street so they can be killed. Does that clear it up for you?

  7. Randi Zaitz says:

    The license plates distinguish the cars and in what areas they are allowed to drive more or less.

  8. This can not be allowed. It is happening very often because the police is softening. These are brutal acts that many times ended in murder.

  9. let the grand dad have their brigade as in america all communities are well versed with each other to form a hub to resist the outsiders to spoil the peace.

  11. Éva Cornides says:

    …hát, igen! Aztán szegénykéim csak néznek, ha valaki visszaüt!

  12. the cockroaches are emboldened. their filth is everywhere and still american congresspeople are shtummy.

    OMG
